Thursday of H2O Extreme
Our last full day of camp was possibly the best yet! What a great day!!
Breakfast was breakfast sandwiches and then it was time for morning chapel. Our ‘C’ of the day was community- which is fitting because throughout the week we’ve been using all of the C’s to build an awesome fun respectful encouraging community. CYC is definitely the best place to be because of our community. Lunch was chicken tenders and tater tots (another camp favorite!)
Our morning all camp activity was water stations- campers played drip drip drop (like duck duck gray duck with water) exploding water station (alka seltzer tabs in film canisters) water tag (each camper had a cup of water and other campers had to tap the cups out of each others’ hands) and a few other fun wet games.
Activities were in full swing. The dance and drama groups were busy rehearsing and perfecting their acts for the big show canoers were enjoying a long paddle on the lake campfire cooking made banana boats (banana with lots of yummy toppings baked over the fire) arts and crafts made string bowls fishing was out on the boat looking for the hot spots and archery was hitting those bulls eyes.
Dinner was super nachos and then it was time for a little cabin free time. Some cabins were getting ready for the talent show some were playing speedball some played volleyball but all were excited for the upcoming talent show.
And what a show it was! We have the most talented campers around and the Thursday talent show was proof of that! It was a great show with lots of laughs and much entertainment.
A full day but we weren’t done yet! Mike Lynch from WCCO (and CYC camp alumni) made a special visit to camp for a very cool star program. Mike has a giant telescope and so all of the campers and staff headed to the field after showers to look at the stars learn about the constellations and we even got to see Saturn! It was a great opportunity to learn about astronomy!
Whew! What a great final full day of camp! We look forward to seeing the parents who are coming to our closing program tomorrow (which will begin at 1:15pm).
